Alternate Truth

“It’s not illegal,”

Jeff reminded himself.

“Nothing’s wrong, pal”

he told his mirror self.

“I have a perfect life.”

Except that Jeff didn’t.

Each morning he spent

talking out his guilt

over his secret life.

“They won’t understand my curse.

They’d disbelieve and doubt

and dismiss me. That’s worse.

“To keep the life I’ve built

no one can find out.” 

“I’m from an alternate universe.”
